Controlled Unclassified Information
This is a broad new categorization of information that must be protected (NIST SP 800.171, effective December 31, 2017) when being accessed, processed or transmitted from non-federal systems. The requirements for control are specific and are being included in contracts between federal agencies and nonfederal organizations, like universities.
Colorado State University has implemented the controls mandated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Special Publication 800-171, for protection of controlled unclassified information (CUI).
If you receive, or anticipate receiving, research sponsorship funding that requires compliance with NIST SP 800-171, contact both the Division of IT and Secure and Global Research.
